The Bracknell Forest Lottery is celebrating its second birthday. Since its launch, it has raised over £70,000 for the local community and over £15,500 has been given away in prizes. So far more than 80 local groups have signed up as part of a fun and effective way to raise funds for their valued services in the community.

Any local not-for-profit groups, PTAs, sports clubs or other charities looking to fundraise in a sustainable way can register for free at any time.

Cllr Peter Heydon, Executive Member for Transformation and Finance, said:

“We are so proud to celebrate the Bracknell Forest Lottery’s second birthday. It was established in 2019 to help raise money in the local community for the local community and to have raised over £70,000 is a testament to the charitable nature of our residents.

“Over the past two years it has helped to support so many valuable causes - very often the good causes that matter personally to residents in Bracknell Forest and we hope this can continue for many years to come.”

Collette Reynolds, Practice Manager at Youthline UK, said:

“The Bracknell Lottery has raised more than £3,000 for Youthline which means we are able to provide more confidential counselling sessions for young people attending secondary school to 25 years of age, as well as adults who care for and support young people.

“We would advise other causes thinking of joining the lottery to sign up, it’s free and really easy to get started.”

Supporters can win weekly cash prizes of up to £25,000 for just £1 per ticket and if you enter before Saturday, 1 January 2022 you will also be in with the chance of winning the national prize, of a £1,000 Decathlon voucher. Buy your tickets online or call 01344 590321.

50% of the £1 ticket goes directly to the cause of your choice with a further 10% going to the community fund, which is used to further support local good causes.
